Our eath is a beautiful planet with a lot of hidden gems. We never knew anything. I found a couple of locations that caught my attention — this just a random list of places I would love to see with my own eyes.
Impressive is the word I would like to use ones my eyes sees these beautiful landscapes. Beautiful places are mother earth’s perfect creation, which we should admire and get inspiration. Let’s zoom in into these beautiful places and enjoy the view
Pamukkale Terraces in Turkey
Pamukkale and the old city of Hierapolis are protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. The incredible rock formations below the ancient city of Hierapolis form a spectacular whitish natural cascading fountain. Waters from ancient hot springs dripping down the hillside for thousands of years have formed terraces of oval-shaped pools. This water accessible by tourists due to its healing properties like calcium. Natural water springs pack numerous health benefits, and one of the pools was presented as a gift for Egyptian beauty queen Cleopatra. Ancient Greeks also took bathe there often.
Fly Geyser, Nevada, USA
Fly Geyser situated on Fly Ranch, a 3,800-acre parcel of land in Northern Nevada bought by the Burning Man Project in 2016. It is a fantastic site that is located about 2 hours north of Reno, on the corner of the Black Rock Desert. The geyser was created by accident in 1964 after a geothermal power company drilled a test well at the site.
The scalding hot water shot from the ground holes and calcium carbonate deposits began to form — these deposits growing several inches each year.
Wave Rock, Hyden, Australia
This beautiful no surfing allowed rock was formed 2.7 billion years ago. At least brilliant scientist claims so. But no surfing allowed that’s for sure. It stands at 49 feet or fifteen meters tall and 300 feet long. Wave Rock’s impressive size and shape have been drawing tourists for decades.
Darvaza Crater, Turkmenistan
Can you believe that this hole in the desert was on fire for more than fourth years. The most prominent craters measured at about 230-feet across and 65-feet deep. Natural gas witch comes out, sustained mostly of methane, which, though not toxic, does displace oxygen, making it difficult to breathe. This wasn’t so much an issue for scientists for many years. So our bright scientists decided to light the crater on fire, with the hope that all the dangerous natural gas would burn away in a few weeks. It created more problems than solutions. Right after visiting the crater in 2010, Turkmenistan’s president Kurbanguly Berdymukhamedov decided that the fire would threaten the country’s ability to develop nearby gas fields and ordered to fit this carter in with nonburning dirt. Thank God no action was taken till now, and the crater continues to burn and attract random visitors for inspiration.
Avatar Hallelujah Mountain in China
Avatar Hallelujah Mountain is a mountain, a one thousand eighty meters or (3,540 feet) made from the quartz-sandstone pillar.
1982 China created its first national park: Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. They couldn’t have chosen better site—Zhangjiajie is famous for its 3,000 vertical rock structures, each many feet tall and covered in lush greenery. These pillars were formed by erosion and time. Thirty million tourists every year visit this site. In 2010 the name was changed to “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain” after the film, Avatar, used photographs from this area.
Lake Saif-ul-Malook, Pakistan
This natural beauty situated on the north side of the Kaghan Valley in Pakistan. It is located in the north-east of the Mansehra Division of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. Reflection in the lake is breathtaking and creates one of a lifetime experience. Summers are a better time to go there. Conditions to get to Saif-ul-Malook in another season, especially if the path becomes wet because very challenging and risky. But pictures made there worth taking the risk to travel. Overall, Pakistan is a huge beautiful country worth discovering.
